A certificate is issued after successful certification. It verifies whether a company, a person or a product meets certain requirements specified by a national or international standard. A certificate is the result of a successful assessment by an objective and independent third party, such as the certification body of TÜV AUSTRIA. It is important to remember that certificates always confirm a currently valid condition. This distinguishes them from certificates or testimonials, for example. Therefore, they are also an important tool for quality assurance.
